The teaser also shows a Warthog, the beloved offroad vehicle from previous “Halo” games, as well as a quartet of people.

It’s not clear how the game will play out – the teaser is extremely broad. Microsoft describes the game and teaser as such:

“The Master Chief returns in ‘Halo Infinite’ – the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine. This thrilling engine demo provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.”

The naming of the Slipspace Engine is something of an injoke for die-hard “Halo” fans: In the fictional universe of “Halo,” slipspace engines are how starships can buck the laws of physics and travel faster than the speed of light.
